Mekkah X Mohammed is a Muslim Republican Conservative who ran for Baltimore City Council District 10 in 2020.
I have analyzed the subject matter of which this letter pertains for many months now. As stated by Malcolm X in his letter from Mecca: “[T]he color-blindness of the Muslim world’s religious society and the color-blindness of the Muslim world’s human society,” not only influenced the change in Malcolm X’s mindset towards white people while in Mecca, but also influenced my mindset towards the Republican Party after seeing the color-blindness in the GOP and the color-blindness in conservatism.
I attended the Million MAGA March on November 14, 2020 in our nation’s capital, in a rally protesting the injustice of a rigged election and the denial of the people’s right to vote for whom they choose. Like Malcolm X was blessed by Allah to see the true meaning of Islam in Mecca, I was blessed by Allah to see the true meaning of patriotism in Washington, D.C.
As Malcolm X understood America’s racial dilemma in the 1960’s, I understand America’s political dilemma in 2021.
While in Washington, D.C., where the fifteenth amendment was passed, I felt a sense of pride, not only as an American (being born in America) but as a patriot- as Fredrick Douglas later in his life viewed himself as a citizen. I witnessed the presence of fellow patriots from all nationalities, backgrounds, and walks of life; we were there to fight for the integrity of this election and future elections, as well as for President Trump.
Many Americans need to understand true patriotism today, as many Americans needed to understand true Islam in the 1960’s and need to understand true Islam in the present day. Patriotism and Islam both create brotherhood, unity, and loyalty to one’s country and the belief in God/ Allah.
As we stood together as patriots, there wasn’t any focus on economic, religious, educational, racial, or social status, but the focus was on our rights as citizens:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…”U.S. Declaration of Independence
Now we know Malcolm X said “By Any Means Necessary,” which brings me to my next point. The United States witnessed many riots stemming from violence, from the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., to Rodney King, and most notably George Floyd.
As Dr. King said in the video above, riots are the result of the people’s voices not being heard. Now, in 2021, rioting is no longer a form of the people’s voices not being heard due to racism alone, but is used as an excuse by Marxists to steal and plunder. With the green light given by some politicians on the left, Marxists have become the most dangerous people in America today. They too are not restrained by anything, having no moral concept, religion, civic responsibility…nothing!
And just like the ghetto hustler back in the 1960’s, Marxists prey upon others and are ready for action at any cost to life or property. They have made up their minds not to respect anything or anybody, especially if anyone disagrees with them!
Sixty years later history has repeated itself; gone are the days of Jim Crow. Yet, social injustices on our first amendment rights and right to peacefully protest without being ostracized – like the civil rights protestors of the 1960’s – are in full swing. Now, cancel culture is slowly stripping away our first, second, and fifteenth amendment rights, turning our country into a socialist society.
I end this letter with the Islamic greeting,
السلام عليكم و على اهلكم
(peace be unto to you and your family).
